MiniDLNA media location - Drop down menu option

Hello all and thanks for Freedombox !!

Suggestion

Would it be possible to have a Drop down menu option for the media location for MiniDLNA config page, to set location ?

A Drop down menu like you have done for:
Transmission and Deluge config pages.

It would make it easy to allow MiniDLNA to share media from:

Transmission or Deluge download directory and Samba open_share directory.

Reason for a menu is to make it more understandable to a user to pick a location for MiniDLNA work from.

Locations options that would be helpful:

Default location.
/var/lib/minidlna

Extras locations.
/var/lib/transmission-daemon/downloads
/var/lib/deluged/Downloads
/var/lib/freedombox/shares/open_share

Since I didn’t see the issue on Salsa, I opened one here: minidlna: Add storage location dropdown (#2084) · Issues · FreedomBox / FreedomBox · GitLab

Hello @jvalleroy

It would be handy to have the samba group add to the menu option of miniDLNA.

/var/lib/freedombox/shares/group_share
